OECD’s 2015 Dementia Report (OECD)


The following report appeared before, and preparatory to, the WHO’s First Ministerial Conference on Global Action Against Dementia Conference, and provided an assessment of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)’s international position on dementia. The OECD recommended higher priority being given to:

  1. Timely diagnosis.
  2. Models of care which promote more independence, dignity and social interaction.
  3. Improving access to palliative care outside of hospitals, allowing people with dementia end-of-life care with dignity in a place of their choosing.
  4. Better handling of ethical issues behind the involvement of people with pre-symptomatic dementia in clinical trials.
  5. New models of consent which address concerns about privacy / confidentiality.
